Douglas Davis was the kid who was drawing when the teacher was lecturing, creating when others were just coasting. With the help of a nurturing mother, and a lot of talent and hustle, Douglas worked his way into a design career, but always wanted more. He had spent a lot of his life creating, but came to a point where he wanted to explore the business side, as well, and moved into strategy. In this week's conversation, Chris talks to Douglas about growing up and going to school with very few resources, moving into the world of strategy and the value it has provided both for Douglas's clients and himself, and Douglas's hustle as a teacher, bringing up a new generation.

    A youthful and often humorous conversation, but full of wisdom nonetheless.

    Douglas Davis story should be the prerequisite for entrepreneurship. His views on life are compelling. His story will motivate you. I highly recommend listening to this podcast. It does not disappoint beginning to end. Hats off to Chris Do and TheFutur team for putting this together. It’s stellar.

    I put it like this: How smart does it sound to spend most of your time doing what you hate so you have just few hours after work finding some energy to go back doing what you hate.
